People who suffer domestic violence at the hands of a spouse often pursue a divorce. What many victims of domestic violence do not know is that they can also sue their abuser in a civil lawsuit to obtain compensation for the abuse they have suffered and to hold their abuser accountable. This can be done in conjunction with a divorce.
Successful marriages do not just require a sense of love and commitment. Both spouses should respect each other and attempt to gain a sense of understanding when they come to a rough spot. While couples that are seen constantly bickering do not appear like they will have a long relationship, those that take excessive measures to avoid conflict may end up dooming their marriage instead of saving it.
